Uncrowded and unspoilt, Fort William lies on the shores of Loch Linnhe at the foot of the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis. A landscape of mountains and sea lochs, forests and glens, and of course the renowned Caledonian Canal; the scenery around Fort William is as diverse as it is breath-taking. Perhaps its settlement on a geological fault in the land helps to create such stunning scenery that attracts thousands of walkers, outdoor adventurers and sightseers every year.
Stay in a self-catering cottage and discover the outdoor paradise along the Great Glen Way where the land follows the natural fault line leading you past shimmering lochs and fells all the way to Inverness.
Experience the Highlands in a truly enchanting way by catching a ride on the Fort William to Mallaig steam train, commonly described as ‘the greatest railway journey in the world’. It is also one of the settings in the epic Harry Potter movies, the scenery you’ll pass on this journey really is, just as magical in real life.
